Can I migrate my Lightroom Classic photos to Lightroom?

If you’ve used Lightroom Classic earlier, you can migrate your catalogs from Lightroom Classic to Lightroom. When you do so, Lightroom brings in each of your photos included in the catalog and uploads it to the cloud in its full resolution for access across multiple devices and computers. Later, to save on disk space, you can even consider deleting those photos from the local storage on your device.

For more information, see Migrate photos from Lightroom Classic to Lightroom.

If you are facing issues while migrating your photos, see Possible errors | Migrating photos to Lightroom to resolve them.
